Haro FlightLine Sport '08
After a having a hard time choosing what MTB to get and that will fit my size, I got it, the Haro FlightLine Sport, great bike, very light and the response is just excellent for a motocross style of riding.
The Flightline Sport is a great starting point for riders looking to go beyond simple cycling fitness on mostly paved, level, mild terrain and explore the sport of mountain biking. Trail-worthy parts like an SR Suntour 100mm fork, 8-speed drivetrain, and mechanical disc brakes combined with its upgraded double butted down tube frame make the Flightline Sport more than capable of handling fire roads as well as singletrack trails. With an affordable MSRP of less than $450, it’s perfect for riders wanting to try a new sport but don’t want to break their bank account.
Well here is basically what I got...
